Running SQL queries/ Calling View in PowerApps

Hi PowerUsers,


I was wondering if we have any mechanism to run a SQL query or call a view within PowerApps without involving MS flow?

I have a very large data set residing in the SQL table and I do not want to attach the complete table in PowerApps.

And do not want to use flow either !!


Is there any way around to get this done ?


Looking forward to your awesome responses 🙂

To the best of my knowledge there is no way to execute a SQL query from inside Power Apps without using SQL.  You can approximate the same thing using ShowColumns() and Filter().  But your data source will use the full table/view that you are attaching to.
